Chris Tillman struck out nine White Sox hitters, allowing just one run over eight innings in the Orioles' 5-1 victory on Tuesday.

Chris Tillman took a no-decision after allowing two runs over seven innings in the Orioles' 5-3 win over the Yankees on Wednesday.

Tillman allowed a two-run home run to Francisco Cervelli in the third inning, but was otherwise dominant. The right-hander allowed only five hits and walked none while striking out three. He has now allowed three earned runs or fewer in 11 consecutive starts. As a result, his ERA is down to 3.68 with a 1.26 WHIP, and a 105/53 K/BB ratio. He'll take on the White Sox in a road start next Tuesday.
Aug 13 - 10:15 PM

Chris Tillman allowed two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a 12-2 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

The only damage against him was a two-run homer by A.J. Pierzynski in his final inning of work. Tillman held the Cards to just four hits and one walk to go along with seven strikeouts. The 26-year-old has bounced back nicely from a rough start to the season and now owns a 9-5 record to go along with a 3.73 ERA across 25 starts. He's a fine backend rotation option in mixed leagues.
Aug 8 - 10:55 PM

Chris Tillman threw seven scoreless innings as the Orioles shut out the Mariners 1-0 on Sunday.

Tillman allowed just four singles on the afternoon, striking out six in the win. Astonishingly, the victory was his first since June 27 despite owning an 8-5 record and 3.78 ERA. The right-hander will look to make it a streak when he faces the Cardinals on Friday in an interleague matchup.
Aug 3 - 6:16 PM

Chris Tillman got a no-decision after allowing five runs (three earned) over five innings in Tuesday's 12-inning walk-off win against the Angels.

Tillman and opposing starter Jered Weaver were nearly equally ineffective, a strange mix that helped the game go extras. The Orioles' right-hander allowed six hits -- including a home run to Josh Hamilton -- while walking one and striking out six. Tillman now has a 3.97 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and an 89/52 K/BB ratio, which he'll try to improve when he takes on the Mariners in a homestand finale on Sunday.
Jul 29 - 11:26 PM

He struck out three, walked two and gave up five hits. It's not as though he's been pitching poorly. Tillman has slashed his ERA from 5.20 on June 5 to 3.92 today, allowing three earned runs or less in nine straight starts. Tillman hosts these same Angels on his home turf next week.

He struggled a bit on Wednesday, particularly in the third inning when he allowed Adrian Beltre to double in two runs and later score in a three-run frame. Overall, he allowed seven hits and walked four while striking out only two. Tillman will take his 4.21 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 64/44 K/BB ratio into his next start against the Nationals on the road.

Chris Tillman pitched the Orioles to a split of Friday's doubleheader against the Rays, allowing just one run on four hits over eight strong innings in the nightcap.

Tillman struck out a pair and walked one on the evening. The only damage against him was a solo homer off the bat of James Loney in the second inning. He'll bring a 4.18 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 62/40 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Rangers.
Jun 27 - 10:46 PM

Chris Tillman threw seven scoreless innings as the Orioles shut out the Yankees 8-0 on Sunday.

Tillman allowed four hits and four walks over his seven innings of work, striking out two. He's sandwiched four quality starts around one clunker in his last five outings, and the win Sunday moved him to 6-4 in 16 starts. Tillman will take a 4.45 ERA and 1.46 WHIP into the weekend's matchup with the Rays.
Jun 22 - 6:47 PM

Chris Tillman allowed three runs on eight hits over seven innings in a loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday.

The right-hander managed to turn in a quality start despite not having his best stuff. Tillman didn't walk a batter but failed to register a strikeout, either. Still, he's now turned in two decent starts after a rough stretch in late May and early June. Tillman will try to keep the stretch going against the Yankees on Saturday.
Jun 15 - 4:47 PM

Chris Tillman allowed just a single run over six innings of work but took the loss against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Tillman dealt with two rain delays, and the right-hander danced through the raindrops himself, working out of trouble all evening. The Red Sox twice loaded the bases with nothing to show for it, including once with nobody out, and at least one runner reached base in each of the first four innings. In all, Tillman gave up seven hits and three walks, striking out three. The loss was his first since May 11, but he carries a subpar 4.91 ERA and 1.52 WHIP into a tough matchup with the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Jun 10 - 11:30 PM

Chris Tillman was battered around but got the no-decision, allowing five runs in an inning of work in Thursday's loss to the Rangers.

Surprisingly, it wasn't even Tillman's worst start of the season, as he had allowed eight runs in an inning to the Pirates on May 21. The right-hander allowed six hits -- including a two-run home run to Michael choice -- walked three, and struck out one. Tillman has flashed dominance at times this season, but he has a 5.20 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP on the season. He'll try to lower both in his next start at home against the Red Sox.
Jun 5 - 11:31 PM

Chris Tillman's next start will come on Saturday against the Athletics.

The Orioles simply want to give the right-hander some extra rest. Tillman tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Saturday versus the Astros.
Jun 1 - 1:15 PM

Chris Tillman tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Orioles' defeat of the Astros.

It was a good bounceback for Tillman, who got lit up for six runs in 5 2/3 innings Monday by the Brewers. He carved his way easily through the Houston lineup on Saturday, yielding only four total hits before exiting with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. Tillman will carry a 5-2 record, 4.63 ERA, and 1.40 WHIP into his next outing at home against the A's.
May 31 - 7:11 PM

Chris Tillman was knocked around for six runs in 5 2/3 innings against the Brewers on Monday.

Tillman has allowed 12 runs on 13 hits and seven walks in 6 2/3 innings over two starts since his 117-pitch shutout victory on May 16. Perhaps his recent groin soreness is still an issue. His ERA now stands at 4.69 for the year. Assuming he feels healthy, he'll get the Astros next in Houston this weekend.
